20 Charged in Theft Ring Sting


Local and federal authorities arrested 18 Dubuque-area residents Tuesday, and two more face charges, for their alleged roles in an international fraud scheme targeting the elderly.

The "Dubuque cell" is linked to more than $1 million worth of fraudulent transactions, according to court documents.

In the scheme, elderly U.S. residents would be contacted, told that a loved one was incarcerated and conned into wiring money to release them from jail. Documents state the local residents would collect those wire transfers and send much of the proceeds to the Dominican Republic.

Paul Chase, 34; Morgan Cornell, 20; Tobey Hines, 33; Payton McCarville, 23; Tiffany Reynolds, 32; and Joshua Willis, 21, each face a federal charge of wire fraud, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office. The release only identifies the six as being from "Dubuque or surrounding areas."

And 14 people were arrested Tuesday on state-level charges during an operation that included special agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations, Dubuque police officers and other federal, state and local law enforcement.

Those arrested were:

"Jenna N. Bowman, 19, of 520 Rhomberg Ave. - Two counts of second-degree theft and one count of ongoing criminal conduct

"Adriana M. Flores, 20, of 3230 Getty Terrace, No. 102 - Two counts of second-degree theft and one count of ongoing criminal conduct
